The world’s largest meeting around water

Every three year since 1997, the World Water Forum mobilizes creativity, innovation, competence and know-how in favour of water.

The five World Water Forums organised since 1997 have placed water on the international political agenda. They have undoubtedly contributed to a global awareness of the water issues.

The Forum must be perceived first of all as a tri-annual process initiated as soon as a host country and a host city have been selected by a series of preparatory processes which combine thematic, regional and political activities. These processes mobilise thousands of water stakeholders over the 5 continents and culminate in the Forum week. However this week is not an end: it represents simply an important milestone in a continuous process combining dialogue, action and monitoring of the results.

With a unifying and open-minded image, the World Water Forum strives to open its activities to the entire water stakeholders of the political arena and of the civil society. The World Water Council, the host city and the host country promote interactions and partnerships at all geographic scales and between all actors, with a special focus on developing countries.
